Biography: 

In Aunt Jenny's stories, at least, this Bayard is an incredibly romantic figure, likened to "Richard First . . . before he went crusading" (11). During the Civil War he is Gen. J.E.B. Stuart's dashing aide-de-camp who is killed (by an unnamed Union cook who shoots him in the back) when he rides alone into a Union camp to disprove the assertion that "No gentleman has any business in this war" (17).
